A KBR employee living in Pearland has been arrested for "abusive sexual conduct" he allegedly engaged in while in Iraq.
NCIS agents (that's Naval Criminal Investigative Service to you) arrested David Charles Breda, 34, at "a Houston-area barber college," the U.S. Attorney's Office said.
According to a newly unsealed indictment, "Breda, a civilian defense contractor employed by a subsidiary of Kellog, Brown and Root (KBR), sexually assaulted a woman at Camp Al Asad, an airbase in Iraq," the release from the office said.
Breda no longer works for KBR.
This is not the first time the company has faced allegations of employees raping women. The claims by Jamie Leigh Jones became a national story.

The U.S. Attorney's Office says "Breda faces a maximum sentence of 10 years imprisonment if convicted of abusive sexual contact, a maximum fine of $250,000 and up to a life term of supervised release to follow any prison term imposed during which he would be required to register as a sex offender pursuant to the Sex Offender and Registration Notification Act (SORNA)."
